Pivot.
It's what we do, it's how and why we got started - we pivot as a response to our local community. Today, however, is calling for a type of pivot a few of us could have imagined.

Pivot Direct is our call to action upon the innumerable stressors our communities are currently experiencing due to the COVD-19 pandemic. To best serve our community, we have scrambled to launch home delivery of locally grown and sustainable foods to neighborhoods through Tucson, placing special attention to assist those of us in the highest need.

By activating the buying power of our communities, Pivot Direct ensures the financial health of our local farms (who are working hard to support all of us!). Your support and participation provides food relief to families in need.

We bring fresh vegetables directly to your front door every week, maintaining much-needed community involvement during these times of social isolation.


TRANSPARENCY
It is critical to our mission that our process is completely transparent to our customers. 
Based on prices established by the farmers, the Summer Mixed Produce box will cost Pivot $10.

Profits are converted into locally grown produce purchased from our farm partners and redirected into the community with the help of partner organizations like Tucson Food Share, IRC Tucson, Imago Dei School, Sol Initiative, Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona, and La Frontera. Our partner organizations help us distribute locally grown produce for free to over 500 families weekly free of cost.

PRECAUTIONS
With over 15 years in the restaurant/vegetable distribution industry, we take food safety very seriously. Our facility is equipped with hot hand-washing, plenty of sanitizer, and inspected regularly by the Arizona Department of Agriculture. The limited staff that come in direct contact with your vegetables have completed Arizona Food Handler Certifications and are committed to ensuring the well being of our community.
Regional food supply chains, such as Pivot Direct, mean there is limited human contact with your foods.
Farmer --> Pivot Direct --> You.

Given the nature of our current pandemic, our sanitation procedures are intensified and we are staying up to date on any additional CDC recommendations.
